Vesterheim Online Auction — with some Great Textiles

I received a Google alert today; my name appeared in the (Mason City, Iowa) Globe Gazette; the linen table runner I donated to Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum was pictured at the top of this article, “Vesterheim online benefit auction begins Saturday, Oct. 7.” This is a nicer photo of the runner in telemarksteppe technique.

There are many desirable items in the auction, especially if you are a fan of Scandinavian folk art. See all the items here, and get ready to bid. I am not going to mention which ones I plan to bid on, because you might bid against me! But be sure to check out this magnificent knife in Sami style; I know I am not going to buy it.
